CQC and patient feedback

What is the Care Quality Commission ?

The Care Quality Commission was established to ensure that providers of care (Dentists, Doctors, Nursing homes, Hospitals etc) are following the policies and regulations that apply to them.

This is done by means of inspections carried out at each location, after which a report is written and any recommendations for change are included. If there are recommendations, the CQC will inspect again to determine if they have been carried out.

What are our inspection results ?

Our practice was inspected in May 2019, and the report can be read by clicking here. The inspectors concluded that the practice required no action and was operating safely, effectively, and responsively, and was well led.

Recent FFT feedback

From the moment you walk in you feel at ease

On the whole very good but waited 15minutes after appointment time

Appointment was on time and my dentist was as normal friendly and cheering and the treatment was also good.

I visited the hygienist last time I attended the surgery. She is very kind, gentle and considerate which I appreciate . She has does an excellent job of maintaining my gums and teeth for which I am very grateful.
